Jon Jones Savagely Trolls Daniel Cormier After He Makes Bold KO Claim
| Last updated
Jones will make his eagerly-awaited UFC heavyweight debut later this year after dominating the UFC light-heavyweight division.
But 'DC' isn't impressed and believes he will struggle to stop anyone at heavyweight.
He said: "Jon Jones will not knock out anyone at heavyweight. He doesn't hit hard enough.
"If he couldn't knock these dudes out at 205-pounds, he's not knocking these heavyweights out."
DC doubts Jones' knockout power at heavyweight.

Jones caught wind of his comments and hit back with a ruthless video.
He shared a video of him beating up Cormier at UFC 214, attached with a clip of his assessment and accompanied with the caption: "Hope you like this quick little edit I threw together for you."

Cormier responded, tweeting: "There is a difference punch vs kick, you're still as dumb as you've always been, you'll never surprise me.
"Dance for me, I can always make you move. And lastly , this fight didn't count if you forgot there was an issue...... remember?"

Of course, their UFC 214 meeting back in July 2017 was eventually overturned to a no-contest after Jones tested positive for Turinabol.
He was stripped of the UFC light-heavyweight title, but went onto reclaim it before relinquishing his crown in May 2020.
The 33-year-old hasn't fought since his victory over Dominick Reyes as he gears himself up for his heavyweight bow.
